Better Creamy Mashed Potatoes

My secret to rich creamy mashed potatoes is to boil them whole and unpeeled. This decreases the amount of water they absorb while cooking. Then, I just hold the warm potatoes with an oven mitt when I peel off the skins. It may be easier to peel and cube the potatoes before cooking, but you can sure taste the difference this way. —Roberta Hill, Sherwood, Oregon
